Submission + - The DMCA, my employer and my liability? 1

Paska writes: I work full-time as a System Administrator for a privately held I.T. company in Australia. Under laws governing Australia, we are also subject to the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) introduced with our Free Trade agreement with the US. My family owns and operates a small Internet Service Provider business with whom I work for casually as an infrastructure manager, maintaining the overall health and direction of the network. My family business provides my full-time employer with their internet services and co-location space. Has anyone had any experience with this unusual relationship? Particular in regards to contracts, and liability as far as copyright infringement is concerned? I am worried that my knowledge of any copyright infringement going on within my full-time employer may impact the safe harbour provisions of our family business. Does anyone have any practical advice?
